On February 20, 2023, Foreign Minister Qin Gang had a phone call with Zambian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Stanley Kasongo Kakubo.

Qin Gang said that China and Zambia are all-weather friends. The phone call between President Xi Jinping and Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema in May last year charted the course for the development of China-Zambia relations. China is ready to work with Zambia to well implement the important common understandings reached between the two heads of state, enhance political mutual trust, deepen mutually beneficial cooperation, strengthen mutual support, and promote the steady and long-term development of bilateral relations. China is ready to strengthen practical cooperation with Zambia in various fields within the frameworks of high-quality Belt and Road cooperation and the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation(FOCAC), and welcomes more high-quality Zambian goods' entry into the Chinese market. China and Zambia should strengthen coordination and cooperation on international and regional issues, jointly oppose unilateralism, protectionism and bullying acts, and safeguard the common interests of both countries and other developing countries.

Kakubo said that Zambia and China enjoy profound traditional friendship. He thanked China for its strong support for Zambia's national construction and development over the long years, and hopes to continue deepening bilateral practical cooperation in various fields and further develop the all-weather friendship between the two countries. Zambia is firm on the one-China principle and is ready to strengthen mutual support with China on issues involving each other's core interests and major concerns.
